Gyro and Accelerometer

Gyro and Accelerometer Panel (GAP)

Primary focus is to develop standards, standard terminology, specification formats, and test procedures for, and to promote understanding of components and systems for detection or measurement of linear or angular motion. A Standard for the Specification of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) is currently under development. Strategic test procedures for emerging new sensor technologies.

The purpose of the Panel is to create standard terminology, specification formats, and test procedures for, and to promulgate understanding of components and systems for detection or measurement of linear or angular motion.

The Panel is composed of representatives of industry, government laboratories, educational institutions and professional societies who are knowledgeable of the characteristics, operating principles, sources of error, and areas of application of these components.

Standing Committees:

The Gyro and Accelerometer Panel meets for two days every two months and is comprised of two committees, one working on sensor-related documents and the other working on systems-related documents. For information on the venue for the next meeting, please visit the panel web page on the IEEE server, http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/gap/


Objectives:

The panel established the following objectives at the meeting that was held on 14/15 January 2013:

Panel Objectives

1. Expand membership with emphasis on the IMU community.

2. Reach out to unrepresented organizations within the inertial community.

3. Resolve all currently known errata by the end of this year.

4. Assign legacy documents for review to appropriate committee based on due date and state of document.

Systems Committee Objectives

1. Update IMU document plan as required.

2. Complete IMU document outline by January 1, 2014.

3. Complete 50% of IMU document first draft by January 1, 2014.

4. Compile new and revised system terminology to incorporate into the next revision of IEEE Std 1559.

5. Complete other assignments as priortized by Panel.

Sensors Committee Objectives

1. Submit corrigenda to correct known errors in Std 952 “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Axis Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyros” to the Panel for publication.

2. Continue revising the editable version of Std 1293 “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Linear, Single- Axis, Nongyroscopic Accelerometers” in preparation for future publication.

3. Establish milestones for publishing Std 1293 on time.

4. Resolve known technical issues in Std 529 Supplement for Strapdown Applications to “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single Degree-of-Freedom Rate-Integrating Gyros.”

5. Resolve known technical issues in Std 293 “IEEE Test Procedure for Single-Degree-of –Freedom Spring-Restrained Rate Gyros.”

6. Resolve known technical issues in Std 517 “IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Degree-of-Freedom Rate-Integrating Gyros.”

7. Resolve known technical issues in Std 647 “Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Axis Laser Gyros” through the corrigenda or revision process.

8. Resolve known technical issues in Std 813 “Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Two-Degree-of-Freedom Dynamically Tuned Gyros” through the corrigenda or revision process.

9. Resolve known technical issues in Std 1554 “Recommended Practice for Inertial Sensor Test equipment, Instrumentation, Data Acquisition, and Analysis” through the corrigenda or revision process.

10. Continue to compile new and revised sensor terminology to incorporate into the next revision of Std 528 “IEEE Standard for Inertial Sensor Technology.”

11. Prepare to revise the next prioritized published standard that requires revision.
